स्फुरितेक्षणदृष्टान्धकारचक्रकवर्तनम् ।
अत्यन्तमभवद्रूपमपि प्रत्यक्षवत्स्थितम् ॥ १५ ॥

sphuritekṣaṇadṛṣṭāndhakāracakrakavartanam |
atyantamabhavadrūpamapi pratyakṣavatsthitam || 15 ||

It is like the rotation of black spots, before the eyes of a purblind man; and as the shape of a shadowy inexistence, presented as something existent before the naked eye.
